We have beeb to La Famiglia several times, and have totally been blown away, with the food & service. We had a family gathering recently for my nephews confirmation, It was just awesome, the family style meals are huge, but most of all delicious.

I am not a review writer however my horrible experience at this establishment has forced my hand to do so and alert the public of the unprofessionalism portrayed by the owner. Our party of 6 for a 5:30 reservation was at 66% in attendance. We were seated at the bar getting hit with a cold draft every time the door opened. The dinning room was two thirds empty so a member of our party had asked the owner if we could be seated while we wait for the remainder of our party to arrive. He flat out said no with no explanation and if fact he told her that he did not have to keep our reservation and that he could give our table away. His manor and tone was so offensive we were forced to leave rather then stay and have an unpleasant experience. On the way out the gentleman who's wife was so rudely spoken to told the owner that he has lost our business and the owner said that he did not need it anyway. If only he know that the third couple we were waiting for was our event planner from church and we were looking to have 4, 50 people events held here because they did a somewhat decent job at the last event they had there.
By the way, the third couple of our party was outside and could not find a place to park. It would have helped if the two front spots right outside the restaurant were plowed. But, way bother just make your patrons walk further to come inside and get abused.

I hate to leave a poor review, unfortunately this could not be avoided. four of six people arrived for a 5:30 reservation, owner would not seat us until entire party arrived. interesting that there is no valet parking, and parking is definitely a challenge. when we questioned this as the dining room was plenty empty, owner actually became combative. Our party decided to take our business elsewhere, ANYWHERE, the owner assured us that he did not need our business. Apparently,this gentleman was forced into the hosptaity business. wouldn't return here under any circumstances.

I visited La Famiglia on a weeknight and was anxious to try it out. The staff was very friendly, but was trying to push us to order more food. We ordered the hot antipasto with mussels, clams, shrimp, fried calamari, eggplant, and stuffed mushrooms. We ordered it for four people (we were five), but it was huge and we ended up taking most of it home. We also ordered the chopped salad, pasta campagnola with chicken, sun-dried tomatoes and garlic and oil , and shrimp la famiglia with a brown sauce mushrooms, and melted mozzarella. Everything was okay, but I won't be rushing back there anytime soon.
